Alumni Off To Great Start As College Baseball Season Opens
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, February 25, 2012
The 2012 college baseball season has kicked off and Terrier alumni are making an impact all over the country. The highlight of this past weekend came in North Carolina with RHP Billy Martin's eight inning, 109 pitch performance in a Canisius Golden Griffin 5-4 victory over Duke University.

Billy left the game with it tied, but he was relieved by fellow Terrier alumni Nathan Linseman who came on in the ninth to record the win. Martin did get a win however in the Griffs season opener last week, a 14-3 drubbing of Youngstown State. Canisius ended up splitting the four game weekend set with Duke. Linseman also got the win on Sunday, going 2.1 innings in a 6-4 decision. Other highlights... * RHP Tavis Bruce is 2-0 for the UBC Thunderbirds. After recording a win in his first start, Tavis was outstanding in his second outing, a 5-0 win over Chapman College. He went six innings allowing just one hit. The T-Birds got their season off to a 7-4 start, and have wrapped up their opening road trip through California. * In their season opener, right fielder Brian Doran had two hits and an RBI as he helped lead Maine to a 6-5 victory over #16 ranked Clemson. * In Cary, NC this past weekend, Jordan Mountford had two hits in his college debut. The Bryant University Bulldogs opened with a 4-1 win over St. Josephs. * Terrier alumni had their finger prints all over the Stony Brook Seawolves 4-0 hot start. Shortstop Cole Peragine already has six hits and three RBI. Baseball America has named Cole as one of the "top newcomers" in the America East Conference. Tanner Nivins had two hits and two RBI in a pair of Seawolves victories over Nicholls State. Armed with his 92mph+ fast ball, RHP Jas Rakkar closed out Saturday's victory over Nicholls by striking out four in two innings pitched.
